The Bills finished their first season under head coach Rex Ryan at 8-8. It obviously was not where they wanted to be at the end of the regular season. Looking back on the season and reviewing everything, Ryan believes performing more consistently at the end of games is the key to improving on their won-loss record last season.
Appearing on NFL Total Access, Ryan pointed to the opportunities they had to win games last season when they came up short.
“I think that’s a big thing,” he said. “We had the ball in our hand and lost five games with the ball in our hand to go win or tie, and we couldn’t find a way to get it done. And then defensively, we have to be better on defense. There is no question about it. I think there is where we fell off from expectations – certainly my expectations, the team’s expectations and our fans’ expectations. So everybody’s. So we have something to prove and we’ll see what happens. We lost a lot of good players, but we have to find a way to get better. One of those things, having my brother on staff I think is going to be a huge thing for us, a huge plus for us.”
Ryan said he has confidence in Tyrod Taylor’s ability to win games for the Bills. One area where he’d like to see him advance his game is making more plays in the middle of the field in the pass game.
